What tier is my area in? How do I check my postcode?


- Advertisment -spot_img

The Government has officially released their website that will allow you to check the tier your area is in. Head to gov.uk/find-coronavirus-local-restrictions to find out your alert level and the exact rules and restrictions.

There is also a handy website and app, www.lockdownapi.com, has been created called the lockdown checker where you can simply enter in your postcode, and you’ll be able to find out the lockdown restrictions in place.

Not only will the website confirm your area name, but it will also let you know your area’s status, whether non-essential shops are open and the latest guidelines around pubs, restaurants and gyms.

It will also outline your social distancing guidelines, including the rule of six and mixing households both indoors and outdoors.

You can also head over to your local council’s website who will also let you know the restrictions in your area and what rules are in place.
